When setting up a CMS we will normally set up a default password that is easy to type / say over the phone to make it easier for the person populating the CMS to get started straight away. But how often is this password changed or updated?

A new tool shows how long it would take for an average desktop computer to crack a password;

Its based just on algorithms and doesn't take into consideration obvious passwords like password123, 'your company name', etc but makes you think before creating a new 'one password to rule them all'.
